Circa 1980 Julius Dr. J Erving Philadelphia 76ers Game-Used Jersey and Sneakers
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $8,700.00
Voted MVP of the ABA three times in five years, Hall of Famer Julius "Dr. J" Erving left the Nets for Philadelphia and took the NBA by storm. "Dr. J" is largely responsible for modern basketball in its present form, a game played "above the rim." Fans and players alike had never before seen the athleticism, grace, and leaping ability possessed by Erving. He was an eleven-time NBA All-Star, MVP of the league in '81, and also led the Sixers to a championship in '83. Moreover, Erving is one of the game's most loved ambassadors. He has also been voted one of the "Top 50 Players of All-Time," and his number has been retired by both the Nets and the Sixers. On the left front tail of this road mesh jersey is the "Wilson" label with the size "40," below which is a white label with "3' Ext" in marker. Across the front of the jersey is the team name "Sixers" in white on blue tackle twill, and on the back is "Erving" in white tackle twill. The player number "6" appears on both the front and back of the jersey in white on blue tackle twill. Included with the jersey is a pair of Converse All-Star sneakers game-worn by Erving. Size "15 1/2" is stamped on the inside of each sneaker. On the outer side of each shoe is "Dr. J." in red stencil. The jersey shows light to medium game use and the sneakers have evidence of heavy game use. Together the sneakers and jersey are an impressive ensemble of authentic Philadelphia 76ers game-used equipment worn by Hall of Famer Julius Erving during the early 1980s. SCD Authentic Grade: A8. LOA from Dave Bushing & Lou Lampson/SCD Authentic. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $8,700.00
